PHYSIOTHERAPY SERVICES

Physiotherapy is a means of improving the movements of the muscles, joints and limbs. It is based on scientific foundations and provides support for traditional medical methods of treatment. Physiotherapy is a diverse discipline and can subsequently be used to treat a vast range of conditions.

At Twin Towers Medical Clinic, the trained and qualified Physiotherapists will assist patients with injuries by restoring their mobility, relieving pain and educating them in disease or injury prevention. Primarily they focus on the restoration and rehabilitation of the circulatory and musculo-skeletal systems. However, it can be used to treat conditions as diverse as sports injuries, arthritis and respiratory problems.

Muscular aches: the most common muscular pain is back ache, which affects a high percentage of people. Physiotherapy can ease stiffness, reduce pain and encourage blood flow to the muscles. Massage therapy is also used to reduce tension around aching muscles

Sports injuries: aches and pains are common following a frantic and physically demanding period of exertion. Often sports players have physiotherapy to ease aches as well as increase flexibility and ease stiffness. If an injury has occurred physiotherapy can facilitate the healing and rehabilitation process.

Arthritis: as people get older they are more likely to develop arthritis which affects the joints and can reduce mobility. Physiotherapy helps to ease stiffness in the joints and to increase blood flow to the muscles and enhance the range of physical movement. Physiotherapy can also help to build strength. The exercises are often gentler for older people who are usually more fragile.

Respiratory problems: cystic fibrosis, which is a condition that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system can be helped by physiotherapy. Often physiotherapists can perform exercises which help to clear the chest and ease breathing. Physiotherapy can also ease and control pain and improve posture which will usually make it easier to breathe. Patients suffering from other conditions including pneumonia, asthma and lung cancer may also benefit from physiotherapy
